This stuff had to be Extra Sport Strength...and it is. If you have tried our deodorants you know they are high quality but this version takes the cake! The secret (no pun intended) is Potassium Alum!
ABSOLUTELY ZERO PARABENS, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, ALCOHOL OR TRICLOSAN CAN BE FOUND IN OUR CREATIONS!
Not To Be Confused For Aluminum:
To be clear, my deodorant does not contain the bad stuff; aluminum chlorohydrate, aluminum chloride, aluminum hydroxybromide or aluminum zirconium—all forms of aluminum commonly used in antiperspirants and deodorants. To stop the flow of sweat to your skin’s surface, the aluminum plugs sweat ducts in the top layer of your skin stopping the the natural flow of sweat to your skin’s surface.
This "bad" aluminum can also be absorbed into your body where it can then build up as part of your body burden. Alzheimer’s disease and cancer are two illnesses known to be associated with aluminum exposure.
The stuff in my Extra Sport Formula is very different, called alum. The most common form is potassium alum, also known as potassium aluminum sulfate.
Potassium alum is a natural mineral salt made up of molecules that are too large to be absorbed by your skin. They form a protective layer on your skin that inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria. In short, Alum is Nature's Deodorant!

Porthos is an homage to one of the most classic masculine scents of all time. Born out of the 1960's but timeless in depth and shape. I remember the first time I caught a whiff of this stuff. (do you?)
It was the mid 1980's and my family and I were staying in my uncle's cabin for a fall weekend. He met us up there to give us the key. Before he took off however, he had my brother and I help him bring some logs inside and stack the rest on the porch. Working next to him is when I "caught it", Aramis. It's unmistakable, infectious, mysterious and Iconic. I truly believe everyone remembers exactly where they where when they smelled this mystery for the first time! The whole experience burned the fragrance forever on to my brain. The scent notes seem to work or reinforce a "smell track" for that weekend; Crisp Fall Air, Fresh Cut Wood, Leather...Rugged and Classy all at the same time.
